Q. 15 A4.0( 20 Votes )

Six lead-acid type of secondary cells each of emf 2.0 V and internal resistance 0.015Ω are joined in series to provide a supply to a resistance of 8.5Ω. What are the current drawn from the supply and its terminal voltage?

Answer :

Number of secondary cells n = 6

Emf of each secondary cell E = 2Volt


Internal resistance of each cell r = 0.015 Ω


Resistance of resistor R = 8.5 Ω


Let current drawn from supply = I





I = 1.39Ampere


Hence current drawn from supply is 1.39Ampere
